NEA BIT Phase 3 implementation launched


5 June 2018

State-run National Electrification Administration (NEA) on Monday rolled out the third phase of the implementation of the NEA Business Intelligence Technology (BIT) system, signaling the completion of the project.

Speaking at the NEA BIT Phase 3 Go Live Program held at H.E.S. Auditorium, NEA Building in Quezon City, Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said the project was designed to address the current situation and progress towards strategies to assist the 121 electric cooperatives (ECs) in rural electrification.

"We celebrate that all FITP Modules are now implemented: the NEA BIT is complete for the Finance, Institutional, and Technical and Project Monitoring Modules -- paving the way to the new NEA wherein information derived from reports infused into the NEA are maximized to support our 7-point agenda," he said.

Masongsong said the information generated from the web portal would assist the NEA in gaining timely and holistic analysis on the EC's current state and business operational performance. 

"It is our tool in fulfilling our mandated mission under Republic Act 10531," the NEA chief said.

The NEA BIT Phase 3 covered Finance, Data Entry Templates (DETs) designed for generation to cater the data requirements of not only the NEA, but also for the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM). 

"The DETs submitted by the ECs via the NEA BIT are the official EC data submission and used as a single source of truth specially on critical data elements," Masongsong said. 

"At the NEA, we need to challenge the data to truly reach the maximum potential of NEA BIT. This means deriving from the meaningful reports and analytics generated by the system to be able to provide strategic interventions to the electric cooperatives," the administrator added.

Launched on August 14, 2017, Phase 1 of the NEA BIT focused on the institutional and project monitoring reports specifically the overall energization status, the Sitio Electrification (SEP) and the Barangay Line Enhancement Programs (BLEP). 

The NEA BIT Phase 2, meanwhile, covered the technical and rates, allowing the electrification agency to gain deeper insights on EC submitted data on energy utilization, system loss and sales from the information that has been generated.

"With the use of this technology, we are given the avenue for the provision of timely interventions and to act decidedly, with dynamism and efficiency, towards the realization of our core services for our partner electric cooperatives," Masongsong said. 

Funded by the World Bank with technical assistance from IT firm Indra, the NEA BIT was a result of the collaboration between the NEA and the ECs through discovery and design sessions back in 2015. A series of workshops had been undertaken on the use of the NEA BIT specifically on the DET for the preparation and submission of reports. NEA

PCL chief wants more cooperatives to operate public utilities


21 May 2018

SAN FRANCISCO, Agusan del Sur - An official from the Philippine Councilors League (PCL) has recently called for the protection and establishment of more cooperatives to turn the tide on the state of public utilities in the country. 

PCL chairman and Davao City Councilor Danilo Dayanghirang said people should rally behind service-oriented utilities like the Agusan del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Aselco) instead of the well-heeled corporations dominating the industry. 

“You must not let our electricity services be turned over to the rich (companies),” Dayanghirang told the stakeholders of Aselco during their 36th Annual General Membership Assembly (AGMA) in Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur on Saturday (May 19).

"Public utilities like water and power systems are better left with cooperatives, not profit-driven companies," he said, echoing the same principles espoused by the National Electrification Administration (NEA).

Speaking on behalf of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, who was unable to deliver her keynote speech due to prior engagements, Dayanghirang recognized the valuable contributions of electric cooperatives (ECs) to the growth of Mindanao.

“I would like to commend the people behind Aselco for giving their time and talents in the service of their consumers and the development of Agusan del Sur,” the councilor said quoting the prepared statement of Duterte-Carpio. 

Led by its general manager Engr. Emmanuel Galarse and board president Corazon Cullantes, Aselco operates in 13 municipalities, one city and 314 barangays of Agusan del Sur or 46 percent of the Caraga region.

“We aspire (for) you to continue in partnership with (NEA Administrator Edgardo) Masongsong to deliver positive changes in our communities. As your fellow Mindanaoan, I am glad as to how far you have come,” Dayanghirang added.

Masongsong, who also graced the event for an inspirational talk, welcomed these encouraging words. In his remarks, the NEA chief stressed the importance of keeping the ECs alive as their business operations are generally rooted in public service. 

“Councilor Dayanghirang was right when he called for the protection of our electric cooperatives. Because if we allow the big companies to operate and control our (power) distribution system, electricity prices will certainly increase,” the administrator said in his remarks. 

Masongsong noted that when the Mindanao power crisis struck in recent years, Aselco managed to keep its electricity rates below P10 per kilowatt hour. Despite this, it was able to sustain its good financial standing. 

With an average systems loss at 7.78 percent and a 98.68 percent collection efficiency, Aselco is considered as one of the top-performing ECs in the country, making it worthy of the AAA rating it consistently receives from the NEA.

As of December 2017, the lone power service provider in Agusan del Sur has connected a total of 149,579 households. It has 123,512 member-consumer-owners to date; 38,828 of whom participated in the recently concluded AGMA. NEA

Abreco inches closer towards recovery


30 May 2018

After a few months of instituting the needed reforms, the Abra Electric Cooperative (Abreco) under the new management is now paying its monthly power supply bills on time, ensuring a continued electricity service in its coverage area in the province of Abra.

Abreco Acting General Manager Charito Mabitazan said the utility's power bills to the Philippine Electricity Market Corp. (PEMC) and the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) amounting to P25 million and P7.9 million, respectively, have already been paid. The bills covered the month of April. 

"This development is proof of the NEA's capacity to extend expertise and lend a hand to electric cooperatives needing financial, institutional and technical assistance," NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said.

Abreco is now slowly getting back on its feet after being hit by mismanagement issues. Last February, NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong formally activated the Task Force Duterte Abra Power to fix the ailing power distribution utility and impose the needed reforms in the financial, institutional, and technical areas of the EC operations.

Task Force chairman, NEA Deputy Administrator Atty. Goldelio Rivera said these reforms include organizational downsizing, implementation of an effective collection strategy, creation of the Multi-Sectoral Electrification Advisory Council (MSEAC), formulation of a 100-Day Strategic Development Plan, and submission of a proposed organizational structure of the co-op.

During their Board meeting last April 23, Rivera said they discussed the improvement of the billing and collection system, as well as the procurement of power supply under a bilateral contract with a power supplier or under an aggregation with other electric cooperatives.

To recall, the NEA was constrained to intervene and take over on February 9 the operations and management of Abreco due to significant adverse audit findings, and notices of default and suspension issued by PEMC which stemmed from the co-op's non-payment of power bills amounting to over P200 million.

Among the adverse audit findings were  overcharging of generation rates amounting to P128 million from July 2015 to October 2016; non-submission of pertinent documents on the utilization of subsidy funds; and non-observance of procurement procedures. 

Also included in the findings were questionable transactions such as the reconditioning, testing and commissioning of 5MVA Substation; purchases from favored suppliers; irregular disbursements for EC vehicles; irregular payments of benefits, per diems and allowances; and borrowing money from various sources at usurious interest rates at 6 percent or thereabout.

MisOr gov backs NEA chief in defending EC franchises


20 May 2018

LAGUINDINGAN, Misamis Oriental—Electric cooperatives (ECs) found an ally in Misamis Oriental governor Bambi Emano who publicly stated Friday (May 18) that he would rather lean on them to power up communities in his province than the private investor-owned utilities.

This is consistent with the position of the National Electrification Administration (NEA), which for years has been asking for reforms in state laws and policies that place ECs at a competitive disadvantage against extremely rich power firms. 

Emano declared his support in the presence of NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong himself during the 50th founding anniversary and 48th Annual General Membership Assembly (AGMA) of the Misamis Oriental I Rural Electric Service Cooperative, Inc. (Moresco-1).

In his speech, the governor recognized the crucial role of the agency, which implements the state-funded rural electrification program through its partnership with 121 ECs nationwide in pursuit of sustainable countryside development.

“The NEA is the one squaring up against big corporations who are out to challenge the franchises of electric cooperatives… Without it, profit-driven capitalists can easily grab the market away from electric cooperatives like Moresco-1,” Emano said in Cebuano.

Emano, however, believes that most private firms are going to be selective in energizing communities. “You cannot expect them to light up barangays that do not have plants or factories. They are only interested in areas that already have existing developments,” he said.

Consequently, the provincial leader said he is happy to know that the current NEA administrator, who also hails from Mindanao, shares the same perspective. Masongsong is an ardent supporter of cooperative enterprises long before he was appointed to the agency.

The fact that Moresco-1, the first ever EC in the country, has grown to accomplish 100 percent energization of all cities, municipalities and barangays under its coverage area is a testament to the success of the rural electrification program of the government.

In his keynote address to honor its 50th founding anniversary, Masongsong touted the excellent performance of Moresco-1, noting its very low systems loss average (2.61 percent) and high collection efficiency (100 percent) in 2017.

The NEA chief hopes these achievements will continue under the command of Engr. Jovel Ubayubay, the newly-confirmed general manager of Moresco-1, whose leadership is respected by Emano as well.

The award-winning co-op currently has 92,058 household connections, serving 83,699 consumers in parts of Misamis Oriental and Talakag in Bukidnon. It aims to position itself as the best power service provider not only in the country but the entire Asia.

Electricity demand under the Moresco-1 franchise is expected to rise dramatically in the coming years as Laguindingan Mayor Diosdado Obsioma also announced that real estate giant Ayala Land, Inc. is pushing through with its development of an industrial hub in their municipality.

Edna Putian-Diango, the Institutional Services Department (ISD) manager of Moresco-1, said this would entail additional 40 megawatts in their energy requirement at the very least thus they are working double time to improve their facilities.

Currently, Moresco-1 has seven long-term capital expenditure projects in the pipeline including a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system, construction of N-1 69 kV subtransmission line, and substation upgrades, among others. NEA
